Summer POP Club – Week 11

Discover the Power of Produce and join the POP Club this Sunday!
July 14 – Week 11: It is Blueberry Festival at the market! POP Club kids will learn about working together and following a recipe as they make blueberry chia jam. Since this activity requires following a recipe, we will be running the demo every half hour (first will start at 9am, last will start at 12:30pm). There will also be an activity for those who do not want to make the jam and those who are waiting for a demo to begin (you can also do both, of course!). Stop by the POP tents to sign in (or register) and get started on the activity. Don’t forget to participate in the 2 Bite Club and complete your passport to get your $3 token, redeemable on any fruits and vegetables in the market.
2 Bite Club: blueberry
The POP Club is a farmers market-based kids program. Children (ages 5 – 12 years old) will learn about fruits and vegetables, local food systems and healthy food preparation through fun activities all season long.
Each week children will earn a $3 market token to use towards any fruit or vegetable of their choice. There is no cost to participate and the program runs every Sunday rain or shine!

Sunday, July 14

We’re celebrating BC blueberries this Sunday at the market! This weekend is our annual Blueberry Festival – Click Here to find out more about this fun family event!

Come hungry and pick up some brunch/lunch at Brazilian Roots or Gypsy Trunk Gourmet Fare.  Be sure to grab your Sunday coffee from Brewnetti Cafe!

Join us at the Kids Craft Table to paint a bucket of blueberries! Not as delicious as the real thing, but lots of fun to create!

We’re happy to welcome the Coquitlam Munch back to the market this Sunday. Find out about this great edible trail in the Austin Heights neighbourhood and stop by their tent to make a small trellis out of items you can find at home.  Also, the City of Coquitlam will be in attendance looking for input from the community on their upcoming strategic plan.

Musician, Caden Knudson, joins us at the Market this Sunday! Get a sneak peek of his music HERE, and catch him live this weekend!
